Finishing Trades Association of Australia

The FTAA was established over 10 years ago to bring together Commercial Painters, Tilelayers, Protective Coatings Companies, Commercial Signwriters and Plastering Contractors.  Uniting under one umbrella enables us to negotiate and co-ordinate during industrial negotiations, marketing and Government relations issues. We are a non-profit employer association managed by a group of elected directors.

The FTAA has two principal objectives assisting the interests of its members in a business sense and ensuring that the professional standards of the industry are upheld.  In achieving these, the FTAA makes a valuable contribution to its members and in particular the industry as a whole.
